Golf clubs are under pressure to keep the course in play continually, which is why it is necessary to overseed greens and tees regularly and rapidly. The course needs to stay qualifying, so the sward needs to stay in an optimum condition Ideally, the operation should be carried out without any disruption to play. The Super Compact Vredo 216 Seeder meets all these requirements. The sharp discs provide surface aeration and the roller ensures that the green is left fast and true. An innovative hydraulic system enables easy adjustment of the sowing depth of the towed machines from 0-20 mm. Even with extreme undulations the Vredo 216 Seeder retains the correct sowing depth. The 3-point design is also extremely maneuverable.

The beginnings of the Vredo company go back to 1947. At that time Mr. B de Vree, a farmer’s son, started an agricultural contractors business. The activities were diverse and machines where often adapted to the specific demands of the heavy clay soils of the local area. The adaption of existing machinery changed, in the course of time, slowly into the development of new machines. The agricultural contracting business changed therefore more and more into an engineering company and later into a fully-fledged factory.
In 1976 de Vree introduced a completely self-developed machine, it was the Vredo Overseeder. At the end of the 80’s the same double disc principal was used for the development of the unique Vredo Slurry Injectors.
In 1989 Vredo mounted a slurry tank on top of a Horsch three wheel self-propelled flotation vehicle. This was Vredo’s first foray into working with self-propelled vehicles. Since 1994, Vredo produces and engineres the self-propelled vehicles entirely in-house.
